2004 American sci-fi film that follows two men – Aaron and Abe – as they accidentally discover time-travel. The film was made for $7,000 by engineer Shane Carruth, with a skeleton crew of 5 and a cast of mostly family and friends. The dialogue is full of authentic technical jargon that is near-impenetrable for the average viewer. I will include this, as an example that low-budget filmmaking does not need to result in an ‘indie’ nightmare or compromise itself, and as a window into the non-scientific interaction of scientists, and the importance of friendship. I wouldn’t include Carruth (big fan of God), but I feel the film can stand up on its own.
